    yea, i wasn't outside for longer than 5 min at a time, including walking from my dorm to the library - which is where i walked through other dorms to make it warmer and then cut through the science building and then to the library...so much better than walking in the cold...

    the snow did suck today though

    It took me 70 minutes (instead of 15) to get home today

    I don't know where I would be without my daily dose of Trish whining and bitching.

    No, wait, I know. I'd be happier.

    yep. and this is worse then anyone else's whining and bitching threads. if you are too dumb to notice, this was created to share and talk about the weather for other people that were freezing today like me.

    get over it.

    but now that i was accused of bitching.. i will.

    i went to the first bus stop early today so i wouldnt miss it... waited there for 25 minutes in the cold.. that was cool though... then went down town and had to walk two blocks to another stop, met a cool girl that goes to my school- waited for 40 minutes for the bus with her.... rode the bus to school

    okay, schools out... i wait 30 mins. for the delayed bus to my transfer stop again

    and then wait 50 minutes in a bus stop without even a roof over our heads. even with a hat, scarf (thanks angelgodiva!), thermal undies, socks, etc...- i was so cold i thought i was gonna die...

    is there at least a windbreak at each bus stop?

    I like taking public transportation, but the wait can be a BITCH, I agree. [​IMG]

    most of the bus stops have wind breaks but the one where i had to wait 50 minutes for the bus had none.

    today was my first day taking public transportation... i think if it wouldnt have been so cold it would have been okay. :)

    that does sound harsh but i think i would take that rather then the 50 mins. in 15 degree weather plus the rest. lol.

    that does suck though...espiecially being up so early.

    also a silly question........

    Ever been to Denver? Evidently not, then you would know why people live here.

    ....and as is the case with most places, the beauty of the other months far outweighs the crappy weather one has to temporarily endure........

    well, its not that bad, but its not great either.

    but being up early is alright, cuz i'm an upperclassman, i can go back to bed, freshman can't...they don't go back to sleep until 10pm...i take naps during the day...

    i did do some training in -40 F for 1 week...now that was harsh...

    If you say so.

    Can't say I've ever seen anything place worth being randomly 'snowed in'/being exposed to Life threatening conditions months annually.

    Yes, I've done more than my fair share of traveling. I've heard more than enough bitchin for several Lifetimes from Folks in these places about the cold w/rarely any mention of how Fine the place is 50-75% of the Year.

    It just doesn't compute...
